This effanbee doll is marked Anne Shirley across her back. Her face was too good to restore so I used the makeup technique explained in the hospital pages. Her body has been restored, though. Her black, velveteen dress has brass stars and rhinstones on the bodice. The gored skirt is three panels in the front and three in the back with the center panel in two pieces to make the opening. Closure is two snaps. The dress is original to her but her shoes, socks and mohair wig are replacements. 14" Anne Shirley is fairly hard to find. A slimmer version with a face that looks very much like Anne Shirley is the 14" Suzanne. Suzanne does not have the glove fingers that Anne has, though.
